I do believe these just might be my favourite earrings. Dress up those comfy jeans with these simple to make earrings. The twist beads are subtly faceted, with a wonderful shimmer. The pacific opal bicones work perfectly without being ever the top sparkly.
1) String twist bead on headpin, and create a wrapped loop.
2) Attach a wrapped link with one bicone bead (wrapped loops on both ends)
3) create 8 wrapped beads and link them into the loop on top of the twist bead, and the link right above that one to create a cascading effect. Use more or less depending on how full you want the cascade effect to look.
I've used rhodium plate headpins for the bicones to keep the cost down a wee bit. The earwires, and fancy headpin are sterling silver.
